Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar 

2 teaspoons baking powder 

1 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

1 cup milk 

1/2 cup gin 

3 tablespoons melted butter 

1 tablespoon lemon juice plus zest of 1 lemon 

1 egg 

Nonstick cooking spray or additional melted butter, for greasing the skillet

1 cup heavy cream 

1/4 cup maple syrup 

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

1 quart blackberries, sliced in half 

Directions

  1. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda to a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Add milk, gin, melted butter, lemon juice, zest and egg to a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined and slightly lumpy.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray or brush with melted butter. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter to the skillet for each pancake. Cook until golden brown on the bottom and bubbles begin to form on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown on reverse side, about 2 more minutes. Transfer to a plate and continue with remaining batter.
  3. Add the heavy cream and maple syrup to a large chilled bowl. Mix until stiff peaks form using a hand mixer. Add mint and fold to combine.
  4. Spread the whipped cream on each pancake.
  5. Stack the pancakes with cream and a few blackberries followed by another pancake with cream and berries. Continue in this manner, finishing with cream and berries on top. Serve!
